Wire Christmas Tree

I bought this "wire thingy" for $1.00 
at a thrift store. It can be
put together to make a
Christmas Tree.  
Really?


It was only $1.00 so I'll try it, surely I could make something out of it...
Ok so far, kind of Christmas Tree like....


After cruising the craft store for an hour 
or so, I decided on this... 
the garland was half off ...


I was also thinking greens, burlap and paint cloth...

I began by wrapping the garland around the wire tree...


and then tied on strips of paint cloth 
and wired on greens...


I turned the "wire thingy" into a
Primitive Christmas Tree!
It's maybe even ready for a small string of lights, some hanging red balls or even a star on top!

Holiday Blessings!

  8. Yes, your primitive Christmas Tree is wonderful. I wonder if this can be recreated for two sides of the front door.
